FAMILY TIES was an American sitcom that aired for 7 years on NBC from 1982-89 regarding a Midwestern family in suburban Columbus, Ohio reflecting the move in America from the cultural liberism of the 1960's and 1970's to the conservatism of the 1980's that was particularly expressed through the relationship between young Republican Alex Keaton(Michael J. Fox), materialistic Mallory(Justine Bateman), athletic tomboy Jennifer(Tina Yothers), independent architect Elyse(Meredith Baxter), and local TV station manager Steven(Michael Gross).
Additionally; FAMILY TIES was an instant smash when it made its debut on NBC in the Fall of 1982 and even won various awards, including 3 consecutive Emmy Awards for Michael J. Fox as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
FAMILY TIES 4th Season is also the season when Scott Valentine joins the cast & crew as Mallory's boyfriend(Nick).
This 1985-86 Season takes me back to memory lane to when I was 13 years old in 7th grade and when NBC's motto was "Let's All Be There", which was NBC's slogan from the Fall of 1984 thru the Summer of 1986.
